"At the time, [me and Tung] were very close. I think it was one New Year's that I found myself in love with her again, feeling so much love for her. I remember sleeping on the floor in my room at my folks' house, waking with a momentary impression—that was an idea that preceded the images—and getting right up and making myself work before it was gone, to capture exactly what I had seen in just a half an instant. I'd trained myself for a lifetime to catch some of those instances—not only visualizations, but thought-stuff."—Bruce Baillie
